Are you searching for storage containers for rent in Idaho? Not sure how to choose one or where to get it from? Keep reading for help navigating the process.
With an area of 83,570 square miles, Idaho is the 14th largest state in the US. It is home to major industries, including food processing, chemicals, paper products, electronics, manufacturing, and mining. In addition, Idaho is also an important agricultural state that produces nearly one-third of the potatoes grown across the United States.
Storage containers can also help serve Idaho’s construction, petrochemical, retail, education, government and military, healthcare, and automobiles industries.
With a growing economy, Idaho continues to see a greater demand for containers for office and storage needs. Affordable prices, easy modifications, and mobility make their case stronger and demand higher.

With a diverse use of shipping containers, let us look at some of their industry-specific applications that will benefit businesses in Idaho.
As such, there is a significant need for storage containers. You can use them to store valuable documents and expensive tools on a construction site or use the container as a temporary office, guest room, and recreational room.
There are other innovative ways you can use shipping containers as well. This includes affordable housing, restaurants and cafes, garages, theaters and bistros, hotels, workshops, art galleries, saunas and swimming pools, vacation homes, laboratories, student housing, and bars.
A utility contractor in Idaho collaborated with Mobile Modular Portable Storage (formerly Design Space Modular Buildings) to purchase a 20-foot shipping container. This custom-built unit is an insulated office furnished with a security door, HVAC, interior mounted electric panels, and a control cable entrance.
The client uses the container as a control house at a substation in Idaho. Known for our on-time delivery, Mobile Modular Portable Storage delivered the unit within two months after receiving the design.
If you need a container for less than 2 or 3 years, or even up to five years, we suggest you rent. Renting gives you the flexibility to use the container for as long as you want, move it to a different site, or return it.
Complete customer satisfaction and long-term relationship is our top priority.
The 20' and 40' containers are our most common containers. The cost of renting a container usually depends on the size and condition of the container and the modification you choose to do. There is an additional fee for pick-up and delivery, depending on the distance from our facility.
For more information, refer to the Mobile Modular Portable Storage renter's guide or contact us.
Shipping containers offer a versatile and dynamic solution to all your storage needs. They can convert to functional and aesthetic buildings as offices, storage units, homes, labs, booths, and more.
Mobile Modular can help you find the perfect shipping container for all your applications. Call us today at 866-459-7600 and get in touch with our delivery specialist to learn more about our industry-specific solutions.
How much room do I need to fit a storage container or office container on my site?
Before ordering cargo containers, you need to ensure that your site has enough extra space for safe delivery and placement:
It would help if you had at least 14' clear height and 12' - 15' width at the place where you want to place the container.
You would also need to consider the door direction. For example, the door could be near or away from the cab of the delivery truck. For office and combo containers, you also need space for the door on the side.
How do steel storage containers compare to PODS?
Storage containers and PODS seem the same at first, but there are significant differences between them:
For how long can I rent a portable storage unit?
If your requirement is not more than three to five years, we advise that you rent the container. You can rent it for as little as a month.
What are shipping containers made of?
Most shipping container structures are made of high-strength CORTEN steel with corrugated walls and hinged doors. The steel can withstand harsh environments and extreme temperatures at sea. However, to prolong the life of your rented container, we recommend that you regularly maintain your container to keep rust formation at bay.
How soon can you deliver the container?
We deliver the shipping container on the scheduled day as decided mutually. With our fleet of trucks and trailers, we don't have an external dependency for delivery. We take less than 1-hour to send you a quotation, and the time needed for customizations depends on your requirements.
Is it safe to stack shipping containers?
Absolutely! Shipping containers are meant for marine transportation and have load-bearing steel frames. One of the main benefits of using a shipping container for commercial and residential applications is the ability to stack them safely.
OSHA clearly states that you need to fasten the containers to each other so that they don't slide. However, you need to comply with OSHA guidelines for safely stacking the storage units. Here are some additional guidelines to keep in:
Do you have a loss and damage protection policy for a rented container?
Yes! You can minimize your financial loss by paying a small fee and protect your rented container against natural calamities such as floods, fires, tornadoes, windstorms, lightning, hurricane, hail, smoke, earthquake, explosion, and third-party vehicle collision.
